Rescuing Dogs to Rescue You
Pawsitivity Service Dogs, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in St. Paul, MN, rescues dogs and trains them as service dogs for individuals with disabilities.
One out of 67 U.S. children have autism. 22 U.S. veterans commit suicide each day.1
Meanwhile, 1.2 million unwanted dogs are being killed each year.2
We are on a mission to rescue dogs and train them as loving, loyal service dogs.
Peer-reviewed studies prove that these hero dogs provide3 increases in:
Feelings of being "in control" of one's life.
Dramatically better social interactions.
Better community integration.
Better school attendance rates.
Better part-time employment attendance rates.
Perhaps most surprising and dramatically, all participants in this study showed dramatic decreases in the number of hours of (paid or unpaid) assistance they required.
A Pawsitivity Service Dog can bring independence.
Peer-reviewed studies show4 that trained service dogs changes people for the better. If a person with a disability gets a service dog, they are more likely to be:
More independent (90%).
Have higher self-esteem (80%).
Be more content (80%)
Be more assertive (80%)
These gentle, obedient, loving dogs help in almost every category studied, including helping one's social life in addition to performing the specific assistance tasks for which the dog was trained.5
Donate to help these dogs go from being unwanted to being heroes.
Accountability is important to you and to us.
